For those who don't know me, I've worked solo on Foamy / Neurotically Yours for over 15 years. So that's what I do. Currently in the process of updated ALL older Foamy episodes to full HD with NEW episodes being posted every 2 weeks on YouTube and NG

illwillpress's News

Posted by illwillpress - 7 days ago


For those not keeping up, a new Foamy Podcast Episode was posted. (It's just a fun side project for me, so I can talk about current events/stuff without having to sit for hours animating and discussing things that end up being irrelevant or forgotten about in a week.


So the quick back story is, it's called "Squirrels & Robots". It's on YouTube

(Not Here, 'cause I get enough crap posting things on NG for some reason. I'm 43 episodes in and I'm gonna get a lot of hate if I start posting them all here... so why bother. Kinda want to have fun with it and not debate with everyone as to why I should or shouldn't be posting here.)


It's Also on Spotify, Google Podcast, Apple Podcast... most podcast places.

Essentially all the squirrels talk about stuff while an irritable A.I. seems to be plotting things in the background. Though Begley has been messing with it so... it's kinda broken.

So there ya go! Back to work! :)

News here tends to be the usual. I'm workin' ovah here!

I did manage to make a ton of progress on the other Foamy series with Sue Z. June, so it's been a lot of back-end work with backgrounds, character drawings scripts and all that type of stuff. It's slowly starting to come together.


On the Newgrounds front, it seems fairly difficult to get folks from YouTube back on to NG. The last NG post I did reached 40k people, and around 500 clicked the link. Kinda disappointing, but hey, I'm tryin'!


YouTube is the usual stress filled platform when it comes to content creators doing anything but reviews or reactions. Kinda sucks that from my perspective, a lot of the freedom to create on YouTube got bogged down by normies who couldn't keep an eye on their kids. So now anything above PG-13 is an issue on that site.

(Even Facebook is more lax with their guidelines.)


Who knows what'll happen over there, but I'll just keep doing what I do, 'cause it's what I do :)

Thanks for supportin' and all that fun stuff!


(Also, if you know folks who have never heard of NG, you may want to let them know there's content here that's actually good as opposed to the generic click-bait reaction crap on YT.)

Just sayin', I can only do so much... SPREAD THE WORD!

Halloween 2020 is going to be a bit different for everyone, but I tend to have a Twitch stream that evening around 7 or 8PM ET. For those who are doing a thing that evening, be safe! Avoid people and all that stuff. Grab some candy and watch some movies or something. :)

For those who need some Foamy stuff, the Halloween Playlist is up on NG with some Halloween Specials.

Other than that, I've been working as usual on everything I usually work on.

Currently eating CANDY!

Now that I have a decent amount of content on NG again

(Though not as much as I'd like 'cause posting too much is an issue)

I'll start getting the word out for folks to make a shift to NG from YouTube, Facebook Etc.

Banners on the illwillpress site and all that stuff. So hopefully Foamy fans new and old can discover/rediscover NG.

So spread the word! (I'm not expecting an influx of viewers to NG though... a lot of people just don't like making that extra click for some reason.) :(

Yep, it's that time of year :)

Rolling out some Halloween episodes here on NG from the original series & the Reboot Series. Kinda want to get them out a little early so folks can have the Halloween Playlist up to date for your casual spooky viewing.

Think there's 4 or 5 of them that will be added to the linked playlist over the next week.

Seriously though, this year is going to be different for everyone, so get yourself some extra Halloween candy, set up some spooky lighting, start adding creepy movies to your playlist and just make it a chill evening. Be safe! :)

Been doing the usual, Cartoons, Podcast, Twitch streams and all that fun stuff while also slowly putting together another Foamy series. (Probably in the style shown below). Kinda depends on how crunched for time I am. I wrote out some scripts and the comics I've been posting here are pretty much a test to see if the characters gel. Not sure what'll happen, but I'm workin' on... somethin;.


Oh yeah, Patreon & stuff.

Be safe! Don't let people sneeze on you!

Still working on the usual things. Foamy cartoons, HD Upgrades of the old stuff, twitch streams, etc. etc.

Also been working on an alt-alt-alt style, which is just a better version of how I use to draw when I was a kid. So it's an odd full circle type thing. It's just some fun downtime project that I'll inevitably turn into some sort of work. We'll see what happens...

Be safe out there... if you're out there. I don't go out there, 'cause people are out there.

PEOPLE ARE GERMS!!!!! ARRRRRG!

(Like... seriously... they literally ARE germs now)

>_<

I don't tend to dwell on anniversaries much, 'cause after awhile... it's like birthdays. You generally have a sense of “Hooray! I didn't die!”, but with Foamy, the last few years have been an uphill struggle. Random IRL stuff, platform issues, and just trying to reach viewers all seem to get a bit more difficult as the years go by. (Should probably start advertising at some point), but regardless, after 19 years, I still enjoy doing this and I'm extremely appreciative to be able to continue to do so, thanks to everyone's support! For viewers both new & old, the continued support over the years has been amazing. So as far as I'm concerned, the 19 years is more about the you than about me. Yeah, I do a lot of work, but if no one is there to appreciate it, it's not much. So again, thank you!

NOW BACK TO WORK!

(I'll eat cake later)

For those who had an issue with older episodes being up for awards on NG, I will be opting out of awards for all OLD content. Hope that helps everyone else out. With that being said, I will try to get the older content up faster, now that it doesn't mess with other people's submissions. If it STILL is an issue for some reason. Let me know. Old content should now have zero impact on your lives, yet still be available to those who want to watch it. :)


Be well, stay safe!

I gotta get back to work! :)

Since I didn't actually think decade old Foamy episodes would mess up everyone's day on NG, I'm pulling back on submissions to NG. So instead of 2 a day, I'll be dropping it down to one episode posted on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. So from here on out, episodes will only be posted on those days. Most will be HD upgrades, but I do still create new episodes which are hand drawn on paper & then imported, cleaned up, and used for animation. New episodes are usually every other week on Wednesdays.


So for viewers, it will take longer to get all the original series episodes back on NG. (For those wondering why they were removed in the first place, look at the previous post's response. It'll tell ya all you need to know.) :)


Hopefully that'll clear up the portal a bit for everyone, and again, I really didn't think decade old episodes would even rank on NG, affecting other's submissions. I don't really expect anything I do, new or old, to trend in any capacity. I just do what I do, post, and hope people enjoy it. :)

Thanks for being understanding.


Be well, Stay Safe, & If you're stuck at home... Use that time to create!


^_^
